These lines are way overlong.  Wrap at around 72-78 cols, perhaps.
Complete each sentence with a full-stop.

There are other changes that are not explained/justified here, I
think.

 - Instead of ALLCAPS as a placeholder for a command line argument in
   the help text, use <placeholder>, because doing so is better due
   to such and such reasons.

I think it is good to consistently do so, but it is unclear why
ALLCAPS is bad and <placeholder> is better.  That needs to be
explained.

 - Replace three-dots in the help text with U+2026 to punish those
   who are still using unicode-inapable terminal in this century.

I do not think this part of the patch is a good idea at all, but
perhaps I misunderstood the reason behind this change you had in
mind (as you did not explain it in the proposed log message).

Is this a desired change, or unwanted change left in the patch by
accident?

Ditto.
